So summer is over, fall is nearing its peak, and the chilly winter is just around the corner. Why not get the upper hand on the winter blues by planning a trip to the Ontario Highlands and a snowshoeing adventure up the Crests of the Kennisis Trail?
The trail is located off of Ontario Highway 35, approximately 35 kms north of Minden, Ontario. Once you hit Big Hawk Lake Rd, you will only be minutes away from the Hawk Lake Dam and Log Chute, and at the beginning of one of Ontario's most beautiful trails. The log chute is the only one that remains standing in Ontario, and lies at the bottom of the Crests of the Kennisis trail.
Cross over the Dam and climb atop the river gorge. Snowshoeing up this trail is a tough workout and it is not for the faint of heart, but it is definitely worth every bit of effort. Walking through the snow-covered forest will feel like getting lost in a scene of Alice in Wonderland.
The top price for this hike…the beautiful views of the Kennisis River, which cuts through the forest on a perfect zig zag.
